Life Should Be Inspired Before It Has Expired



While digitally paging through a myriad of blogs, I happened upon one that listed itself as filled with inspirational content. Not one of the declarations within was signed, so here is some of the inspirational wisdom I took away from it.

The only time it's too late to change yourself is when you're dead. Until then, you're simply making excuses or lying to yourself.

Determination today leads to success tomorrow.

Someone will always be prettier.
They will always be smarter.
Their house will be bigger.
They will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go,
and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it.
The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
And the most highly favored
Woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know,
she's got the car, the house, the clothes....might be lonely.
And the word says if "I have not Love, I am nothing."
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say
"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!"
"Winners make things happen.
Losers let things happen."
"To the world you might be one person,
but to one person you just might be the world".

There were more, many more  -- but that's enough for now.

On this day, July 31, 1975,Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa was reported missing in Detroit, Michigan. He was last seen alive in a parking lot outside the Machus Red Fox restaurant the previous afternoon. To this day, Hoffa's fate remains a mystery, although many believe that he was murdered by organized crime figures.

Authorities have never been able to confirm what really happened to Hoffa. He was declared legally dead in 1982.

The latest search for the remains of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa ended on Wednesday, July 24, 2013 in a field near Detroit, where federal agents had dug with heavy equipment and shovels for three days in the hope of answering the decades old question, "Whatever happened to Jimmy Hoffa?"

2. something inspired, as an idea.
3. a result of inspired activity.
4. a thing or person that inspires.

J. K. Rowling is a British novelist, best known as the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series. Since, Rowling has parted with her agency and resumed writing for adult readership, releasing the tragicomedy The Casual Vacancy (2012) and -- using the pseudonym Robert Galbraith --the crime fiction novel The Cuckoo's Calling (2013) which, according to Rowling, is the first of a series. 

Note: The Writer's Almanac has a nice write-up about J.K. Rowling today.  When I was reading it early this morning, I noticed the following sentence: "It took J.K. Rowling awhile to find a publisher for her novel..." and I thought, 'Is that correct English grammar, using the word 'awhile' instead of the two word form, 'a while?' I haven't looked it up yet. But I will.


You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
